I visited the Craig's List site, and was looking for personal ads; women4men. I've been divorced 8 years, and was discouraged by all the scam attempts on dating sites,, figuring that CL was at least a person-to-person connection. In one night I responded to three ads, two of which tried to scam me by asking me to "verify" my age, name, and criminal record. The verification sites they provided mimicked legitimate "safe date verification" sites, were very well done, and even named legitimate billing service, but the scam was to not accept the credit card info ("declined by the card issuer), suggesting that I submit another card instead. And I fell for it the first time, but when the second woman asked me to verify myself (at a different site, which she provided a link to), and the site response was "declined by issuer" (same as the first site) and I provided a different card to the second false site, I knew it was bogus. I was lucky enough to notice the similarities, and able to call my card services in time to prevent payment. I should have noticed that they (the scammers) both used multiple email servers, and emailed me from different providers on the same night, with different user names. here is a website that exposes and describes scams like this, and sure enough, the site even named the same names that these women were using, and had the exact same photo in their report that I had received from the scammers.
http://safemeetingsonline.com/... was one of the false verification sites, and Carrie Flores was the name used by that one, with the email address of [email protected]
The other site was http://nsaprofilebuddy.com/kat..., and the name used was Katie, with an email of [email protected]
